Fidelity to the Word

Come, and let us return to the Lord: For he hath taken us, and he will heal us: he will strike, and he will cure us. He will revive us after two days: on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Osee 6:1-3

My cup runneth over...

... and so do the columns of this blog.

Sorry for the appearance of the blog. I've been updating the blog
header from time to time, even though I have not been adding new
posts. After this morning's update, lines no longer wrap where they
should. I'm aware of the problem and will attempt to fix it when
I have time. God bless you, and may God grant us the grace to face
life's little setbacks with equanimity.

Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming

God's peace to you, dear visitor, and may His Spirit rest upon you in your labors. For myself, while I love attempting to meditate on the things of God, my obligations are elsewhere and I won't be regularly blogging here for a long while still. Pray for me; I'll pray for you. And strive always to remember His mercy and abide in His love.

All things have their season...

As the year winds down, so does this blog. God willing and time permitting, I may start blogging again next Christmas.

If you are looking for a Catholic blog to visit, here are a few which I have visited recently and can recommend.  Of course, no blog is perfect, but each of these will edify, enlighten and/or entertain:

Unam Sanctam Catholicam
Old Time Catholic Blog   [2/2/2014 note: be careful, I've gotten virus warnings the last few times I visited this blog]
The Curt Jester
Catholic Cartoon Blog
Rorate Caeli

And here a few good websites:

Fish Eaters has a wealth of information about Catholic customs.
If your goal is the perfection of your soul, visit the Saints' Discussion Forums.
The New Liturgical Movement has writers knowledgeable about the history of the Mass, who hope to restore to our Liturgy the reverence and transcendent beauty which has become more elusive in recent decades.

Finally, please sign this online petition to the Pope, requesting that he publicly celebrate the Traditional Mass himself. What a beautiful sign of unity and good will between himself and traditional Catholics that would be!

May God bless you in the coming year.

Deo gratias semper agamus.

On the Feast of Stephen

Good King Wenceslas looked out on the feast of Stephen,
when the snow lay roundabout, deep and crisp and even.

Brightly shone the moon that night, though the frost was cruel,
when a poor man came in sight, gathering winter fuel.

"Hither, page, and stand by me, if thou know'st it, telling:
yonder peasant, who is he? Where and what his dwelling?"

"Sire, he lives a good league hence, underneath the mountain,
right against the forest fence, by St. Agnes fountain."

"Bring me flesh and bring me wine, bring me pine logs hither.
Thou and I will see him dine, when we bear them thither. "

Page and monarch, forth they went, forth they went together,
through rude wind´s wild lament and the bitter weather.

"Sire, the night is darker now and the wind blows stronger.
Fails my heart, I know not how; I can go no longer."

"Mark my footsteps, good my page, tread thou in them boldly.
Thou shalt find the winter´s rage freeze thy blood less coldly."

In his master´s steps he trod, where the snow lay dinted.
Heat was in the very sod, which the saint had printed.

Therefore, Christian men, be sure, wealth or rank possessing,
ye who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.


Walk in thy King's footsteps, Christian reader, and do not fear the winter's rage.
